I loathe Wal-Mart with the passion of a thousand suns. I had to go there a couple weeks ago to get a cheap bucket for water changes -- the PetSmart next door had one, but it was $15.
I swung by the fish section and was just crushed. Dirty tanks, a plethora of dead fish, and bettas in awful, discolored water. I'm not talking about the blue kind that stores have to sedate the fish. I'm talking nasty brown water. I wanted to save at least one, but I had just gotten Romeo and had no accommodations for another. So sad.
